Comparison of the Genome-Wide DNA Methylation Profiles between Fast-Growing and Slow-Growing Broilers
Introduction Growth traits are important in poultry production, however, little is known for its regulatory mechanism at epigenetic level. Therefore, in this study, we aim to compare DNA methylationExpand

LncIRS1 controls muscle atrophy via sponging miR‐15 family to activate IGF1‐PI3K/AKT pathway
Recent studies indicate important roles for long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in the regulation of gene expression by acting as competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs). However, the specific role of lncRNAsExpand

Associations of GHSR gene polymorphisms with chicken growth and carcass traits
Ghrelin receptor (GHSR), or growth hormone secretagogue receptor, modulates many physiological effects by binding to its ligand and therefore is a candidate gene for chicken production performance.Expand
